Students have put Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS) in second position in the 2019 National Student Survey (NSS) for medical schools.  

BSMS achieved an overall satisfaction rate of 96%, with 97% of participants agreeing that the course is intellectually stimulating and 98% believing that staff make the subject interesting. The medical school received an impressive response rate of 93% of students, compared with a sector average of 72%.

Professor Malcolm Reed, Dean of BSMS, said: “The results reflect the hard work of everyone at the medical school, along with our colleagues in the NHS. We are committed to providing our students with the best possible education, and preparing them to be outstanding and compassionate doctors in their future careers with the NHS and beyond.” 

Professor Juliet Wright, Director of Undergraduate Teaching and Learning at BSMS, added: “We are delighted with our results, and it is really pleasing to see that our efforts to improve the student experience in assessment and feedback has been reflected in excellent scores with values significantly above the sector average.

"In addition, with a 93% student response rate we can be content that this is true reflection of our students’ experience and we will continue to work with all years, with careful attention to their feedback to ensure our course continues to offer an exceptional education.”
